NSW Sport and Recreation is offering parents, teachers and coaches the opportunity to gain a formal accreditation in swimming coaching.
Australian swimming has a five-tier coaching system. All coaches must commence by gaining Green Licence Accreditation, which focuses on developing the techniques of novice swimmers.
Topics include: Being an effective swimming coach; the mechanics of swimming; starts, turns and finishes; technique and fault identification; and developing competitive strokes in the areas of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
The Green Licence Accreditation will take place at the Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre on Monday and Tuesday, December 11 and 12, from 9am-4pm each day. The course costs $335.
